A young woman is searching for her way of life – as she is feeling rather insecure, she makes up rules for every little detail – but life is not made for following rules; or rather: rules have to be adjusted to life all the time. While following the narrative through her partly amusing, partly desperate search for self-confidence, the reader is captured by the female narrator’s voice conjuring up a lyrical world of language, rich in universal incantations and existential longing.
